“The Handheld Group doesn’t market the Nautiz X1 as a ruggedized version of a consumer smartphone, but they easily could. So consider it a small and handy mobile computer designed to reliably and efficiently perform data capture and data communication tasks out there in the field. And also serve as a smartphone that won’t ever break.”
